Tiny Warz: Big on Fun

8 10 2009

Recently I’ve gotten into looking at browser-based games that are either free or have an optional pay model. One such game is Tiny Warz, a Massively Multiplayer Turn-Based Strategy Game (or an MMTBSG if you like alphabet soup). The game is free to play but of course there are some restrictions that are only lifted if you do pay for what are called “TinyDays”. Still, even without paying to play the game is very open and accessible. Not to mention fun.

DLC Review – Fallout 3: Mothership Zeta

12 08 2009

A couple weeks ago, having found that I had 900 or so Republic Credits Microsoft Points, I decided it would be a good idea to grab the last DLC pack that Bethesda has released for Fallout 3. I am of course talking about Mothership Zeta, which probably takes you the furthest possible distance in any Fallout game since you wind up in space.

So it’s only natural that, despite my aversion to all things World of Warcraft, I was curiously drawn to the fact they made two WoW-themed soda flavors for the summer. Natrually known as “Horde Red” and “Alliance Blue”. So…I figured I’d do a taste test of sorts…

Inequal Measure Review: GTA Chinatown Wars (Nintendo DS)

13 04 2009

I know I’ve been kind of quiet, mostly due to working on finishing up my schooling. In any event I thought I’d do a few game reviews on here, just for what I’ve been playing recently. I’m not going to use a typical score-based rating system, rather I will be comparing the reviewed game to other games in its genre or series. Sort of a “greater-than, less-than” system (i.e. an inequality, hence “Inequal Measure”).

So first up is a game I got a couple weeks back and (sadly) have pretty much finished: Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the Nintendo DS.
